Kin Kin Road—Six Mile Creek: replace timber bridge

Design is now complete to replace the Six Mile Creek timber bridge on Kin Kin Road, 3km north of Pomona, with a concrete bridge structure.

To improve safety, capacity and reliability, the Six Mile Creek timber bridge will be replaced with a wider, 2-lane concrete structure.

The new 4-span bridge will also improve flood immunity.
